1 1 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 1 Higher Speed Ethernet Update Greg Hankins APNIC IX SIG APRICOT /02/28

2 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 2 Per IEEE-SA Standards Board Operations Manual, January 2005 At lectures, symposia, seminars, or educational courses, an individual presenting information on IEEE standards shall make it clear that his or her views should be considered the personal views of that individual rather than the formal position, explanation, or interpretation of the IEEE.

3 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 3 Higher Speed Ethernet - Technology Pull, Not Push End users from many different markets are asking for 100 GbE today –IXs –ISPs –Content –R&E and HPCC Already getting media attention and mention by C-level execs Participation in the HSSG by end users has never been this high –Thanks for your support…

4 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 4 Higher Speeds Drive Density (or, Why Should I Care?) 100 GbE will benefit everyone –Even if you don’t need it –Requires a fundamental advance in technology Drives 10 GbE port density up and cost down Possible line-rate combinations –1 x 100 GbE port –10 x 10 GbE ports –100 x 1 GbE ports –And even more oversubscribed port density… Your bandwidth requirements and port densities are growing, not shrinking

5 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 5 Call for Interest Study Group Task Force Working Group Ballot Sponsor Ballot Standards Board Approval Publication Feasibility and Research Ideas From Industry Industry Pioneering 1 Year HSSG is Here Ad Hoc Efforts CFI July 18, 2006 Q Birth of an IEEE Standard: It Takes About 5 Years IEEE ~4 Years

6 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 6 HSSG Focus MDI - Medium Dependant Interface PCS - Physical Coding Sublayer PHY - Physical Layer Device PMA - Physical Medium Attachment PMD - Physical Medium Dependent WIS - WAN Interface Sublayer XGMII - 10 Gigabit Media Independent Interface MAC data rate objective and architectural issues PHY objectives Types Reaches IEEE Std

7 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 7 Summary of Adopted Objectives (Requires 75% Approval) All: All people in the room, 802.3: Registered voters Objective Votes (Yes / No / Abstain) Nov 16, 2006 Interim Support full-duplex operation onlyAll 73 / 0 / 4 Preserve the / Ethernet frame format at the MAC Client service interface All 76 / 0 / 6 Preserve minimum and maximum FrameSize of current StdAll 74 / 0 / 4 Support a speed of 100 Gb/s at the MAC/PLS interface All 67 / 9 / / 6 / 11 Support at least 10km on SMF All 86 / 0 / / 0 / 4 Support at least 100 meters on OM3 MMF All 61 / 3 / / 2 / 13 Jan 19, 2007 Interim Support a BER better than or equal to at the MAC/PLS service interface All 68 / 0 / 4 Support at least 40km on SMF All 38 / 10 / / 6 / 16

8 Force10 Networks, Inc. - Confidential and Proprietary, For Internal Use Only 8 Next Step: Becoming a Task Force The HSSG must answer the 5 Criteria –Broad Market Potential –Compatibility –Distinct Identity –Technical Feasibility –Economic Feasibility The tough one – “Broad Market Potential” –Questions per IEEE 802 –Broad sets of applications –Multiple vendors and numerous users –Balanced cost (LAN versus attached stations) –Issues –Desktop success (volumes much less than GbE) –10 GbE volumes haven’t met projections –Your input is needed here…!
